Body movement in music performance is often a hotly debated topic. 

We may find ourselves inquiring, “Is my movement getting in the way of my performance?” or “Do I need more movement in order to avoid looking stiff or robotic?”

Emma Shubin’s answer to this argument is simple.

Since recently beginning her Ph.D. at the University of Luxembourg, Emma has dived into research on how music and movement affect instrumental learning in the early years. She strives to support the idea that movement is a tool waiting to be accessed through the embodiment of our whole authentic selves.

Emma’s words will inspire you to reimagine your approach to music-making.
